    Allen in his video speech gives out his thoughts on how people’s life is shaped by information and the latest developments on wechat. Jeff gave comparisons between wechat and facebook. He has better opinions of wechat. However, I have to say as a social network platform, there is no big difference between wechat and facebook in terms of addictiveness, intrusion of privacy,bragging and showoff. Maybe Allen invented the wechat for people to get conneted and communicate, but his boss Tony Ma has different idea.
